On September 8th, students at St. John Bosco Academy heard a first-hand account of the 9-11 disaster from responder Clair Baldwin.  Mr. Baldwin was a member of the Utah Task Force One, which responds to national disasters throughout the country.  The task force group spent two weeks at ground zero following the terrorist attack in 2001.  Mr. Baldwin made separate presentations to grade school and high school sharing his experiences during that time.  He enjoyed lunch with the high school students which allowed them to ask further questions about his experiences.  All students appreciated learning more about this defining moment in our country for the 20th anniversary.
